MPs approved the proposal for the first election of office’s chairman in a secret ballot, the SITA newswire wrote. The new office is stipulated in the recently passed Law on the Office for Regulation of Electronic Communications and Postal Services and the Transport Office. It stipulates that five regulatory offices controlled by the Transport Ministry should merge into two by the beginning of this year. The goal is to reduce the number of budgetary institutions, reduce the administrative staff, and thus save money. In the first three years of the operation of the new institutions, €2,129,000 should be saved, according to officials.
